Hola, amigas!
We are having company for dinner… a Mexican themed dinner… and a muy competitivo  game of Mexican Train dominoes!

 To end the meal, I have a very yummy dessert planned.  Muy delicioso… creamy custard, caramel and Kahlua…

 Mexican Train Flan With Kahlua

Flan is a beautiful baked custard with a sugary sweet caramel sauce built in!

I love flan, but had never made it myself. I always thought it was a little intimidating. I checked out a few recipes on line and finally deferred to my favorite go-to expert… Martha Stewart ( my other favs are Ina Garten and Julia Child).

Flan is actually quite easy and rewarding! Although none of the techniques to make flan were new to me I opted to watch the video on Martha’s recipe site… and picked up some great tips! To see the recipe and a very helpful video, click HERE

I gave the flans a “kick” by drizzling a tablespoon of Kahula over the top of each of then before serving. OLE’!

Visit Martha to get the recipe for these creamy sweet treats... PERFECTO!

    I worked with a mental health doctor from Spain who made a to die for flan. We have had lots of fun playing Mexican train dominoes. I display my dominoes in glass carafes because I think they are pretty. Great post Yvonne.
